Cranberry Apple Crisp

Cranberry Apple Crisp

This weekend I was wanted to come up with a fall dessert that not only tasted great but also was mostly “clean.” Here is what I came up with.

In order to like this dish you need to enjoy the flavor of cranberries. I enjoyed the tangy flavor but my husband was wishing it were a bit sweeter. This turned out great as a hot dish but also tasted delicious when I had it as a morning snack today!

It would make a nice side for a Thanksgiving of fall gathering. Here is what you will need:

3 medium to large crisp red apples, peeled and sliced
1 dry pint of fresh cranberries ( I used organic )
1 lemon
¼ cup of brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon whole-wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 ½ teaspoons of cinnamon
2 cups of old fashioned oats
¼ cup
2 – 3 small pads of butter to put on the top for baking

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine the apples and cranberries and pour into an eight inch-square baking dish.
Squeeze lemon over mixture
Sprinkle pumpkin pie seasoning, cinnamon and brown sugar over mixture and stir.
In a small bowl combine oats, flour and another teaspoon of cinnamon as well as pumpkin pie spice. Mix and then coat mixture with this. Add butter pads over the top to be melted into mixture.
Bake for 40 – 45 minutes uncovered until bubbly and fruit is soft.

Serves 4 - 5
